did not like it
Read in February, 2012

Why oh why did I read this? I want that two hours of my life back and I want it now. This is a dreary account of the Japanese migration to the USA told through a multiplicity of female voices. Just as you think it might get interesting with the Japanese internment in World War II it ends. Maybe I'm the wrong gender for this or maybe anyone with any intelligence or an interest in good writing is not the correct audience for it. I feel unclean just thinking about this again - this is what ebooks are made for. I'm off to press delete and never think of this again.
